Carter Allen married Jincy Groves 1820 in Rutherford Co. NC. They set up housekeeping just in time for the 1820 census there. Carter acquired land in Habersham, GA during the 1820's. In 1830 census, they had five children, 2 daughters, one under 5 and one between 5 and 10, 3 sons, one under 5 and two between 5 and 10. In 1840 census, they had 2 sonsunder 5, 1 son between 5 and 10 and 2 sons between 15 and 20. Their two daughters were between 10 and 15. By 1850 census, the four older children were gone. Four sons listed by initials, J.=21, T.M.=14,G.W.=12, and J.-8. By 1860 census, James E.=32 and his wife Setha=17 live in next household. With Carter and Jane are Francis M=25 and George W.=22. The youngest son , 8 in 1840, presumably 18 by 1860 is gone, dead or married or both. None of this family remain in Habersham Co., GA in the 1870 census. There is a G.W. Allen in Fourth Ward of Atlanta/Fulton Co. age 32, born in GA, that could be this George W. Allen. Any ideas about where this family went between 1860 and 1870 or how their property was disposed of would be greatly appreciated. One of the older sons may have been William G. Allen married to Hannah Crumley. One of the girls may have been Nancy Allen married to Job (Joseph) Sosebee. These two couples were neighbors to each other in Habersham Co. in the 1850 census. Thanks.
